EPISODE 22:
Home

SPACE SEED

Original Airdate: February 16th, 1967

Guest Starring:
Ricardo Montalban and Madlyn Rhue

THE PLOT:

The Enterprise encounters the Bounty Bay, a ship that escaped the Earth during the last major war. Within the ship are people genetically enhanced and the cause of the Eugenics War. The leader is a power mad lunatic Khan Noonian Singh.

But James decides to hold out the olive branch of peace until Khan does something to change that and what a surprise that he does. He takes over the ship and James is the only one free ala Die Hard to stop a ship full of super powered goons.

THE OPINION:

I know this is before DIE HARD, don't go writing me saying that this was before DIE HARD. Anyway, I got to admit this is a good episode. One of the best in the series, no. But a good episode. Ricardo Montalban does make a great villain and Khan does make a great bad guy. Which is probably why they pick him as the villain for the second movie.
